  1. Nice to see Samuel Dravis is still kickin it. And the new Tomb Raider looks tasty.
  2. Wow, I haven't been here in forever *scratches long grey beard* Man, I'm old now! What have you guys been up to? What have I missed?
  3. I just read the Hunger Games series. Friggin' phenomenal.
  4. Call of Duty is always a great ride. Yeah the story can be far fetched, or in the case of Black Ops, as convoluted as any Tom Clancy game, but the gameplay is solid, the action is intense, and it's what a game should be first and foremost: fun to play
  5. Hello all. I don't own any albums by Queen (I know, I know) but would like to get a good sampling of the band's music without dropping a ton of cash on EVERYTHING they've ever done. I also don't want to buy a "Greatest Hits" album, because as we all know, greatest hits doesn't always equal greatest songs. So, I want a list of 10-15 of Queen's must haves. They don't have to be the popular ones: We Will Rock You and We are the Champions can be excluded from the count, but will likely make the list as bonuses. I'm looking for the absolute best songs. Here's what I got so far as the popular ones that I like: Killer Queen Fat Bottom Girls Bohemian Rhapsody Point me to the others that I might not have heard on the radio.
  6. I especially like how he is the picture of a classic Douchebag. Sideways hat, douchy chin beard, AND he can't catch a friggin baseball...worthless. [edit] he actually said "I lost it in the lights!" That's just classic lame sauce.
  7. Twilight with Rifftrax is the absolute only way to watch Twilight at all. One of the funniest rifftrax ever.
  8. Best Troll thread ever I approve
  9. Pure, unadulterated, awesomeness. I can't get enough of epic orchestra music and these guys are friggin phenomenal. Great find man
  10. For me, vigilante movies are always a good idea, and when done right, send a resonance through people. V for Vendetta is one of those. It's portrayal of corrupt government and the power of the people was great, but even more than that, it's depiction of the people's accountability and the price of freedom was amazing For the Boondock Saints, it's a similar thing. Circumnavigating the law to do what is right and necessary. What I like about the movie is that it's not only well done, but hilarious as well. The characters and idea is sold to us even though it's pretty unrealistic. And in spite of the lack of realism, we BUY it. Then there's the religious backing of their actions. Most vigilante movies (vendetta, Batman, etc) the hero(s) become crime fighters because of some personal loss. With the Saints, it's a divine calling that, unknown to them, reaches back through their blood lines. Even if you're an athiest, you gotta appreciate the level of accidental competence they posess. Then there's the prayer they recite before they ice somebody (as seen in my sig) The prayer isn't just badass like when Jules in Pulp Fiction does one. It has a purpose. It's acknowledging last rights of the victim and dedicating their actions to God and man. It's putting a purpose to the kill. They see themselves as the avenging hammer of God and who can refute the evidence. All in all though, it's just a fun movie. It's so off kilter and different from the norm that you can't help but like it in some way or another. For me, I was late to the movie as well. Saw it for the first time two years ago, and after one viewing, I liked it, but wasn't blown away. The more I thought about it, the more it grew on me to where it's one of my favorites now.
  11. I remember you. No mean feat either since I'm more of an experienced lurker than an active poster any more. Welcome back and may all your wildest dreams come true because of your return
  12. Congrats man. Nobody deserves happiness more than you...Okay everyone deserves happiness more than you, but YOU wouldn't take that lying down. Way to club your cave woman and drag her to your hut. Most people wait for happiness to find them. Dath Maximus makes happiness his Bitch. *salute*
